Employment for PhDs in the Intelligence Community

The January 2021 Employer Virtual Visit for PhDs features employers in the Intelligence Community at an event organized by AFCEA.

A panel of five Emerging Professionals in Intelligence Community (EPIC) committee members situated across the Intelligence Community (IC) will describe their backgrounds and career paths leading to the IC.

The panelists will also discuss current roles, responsibilities, day-to-day life, and other facets of IC work-life which may be of interest to students and post-doctoral fellows. The event will close with a series of breakout sessions hosted by each panelist to engage directly with attendees. 

Note: US Citizenship required for employment with the federal agencies presenting at this AFCEA event.
